i'd like to have some info about what drops if you already have all the legendary gems.

 

Legendary gems will stop dropping, but you can get additional ones to drop if you store a legendary gem on another character (you will receive the 'hidden' one.)

  • 60%: Gem's Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ 0;

here's the mistake, it should be

60%: Gem's Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ Gem's Rank;

Very, very helpful Diablo guides. Excuse my ignorance but can the legendary gems only be upgraded when unsocketed? Thank you

Nope, you can upgrade any Legendary Gem you've got either in your inventory, stash or equipped. You can even switch them between characters.

The minimum Rift levels needed to get 100% every time is over by 1. It should be 12, 15, 18, etc.

If you run a rift at rank 13, with a rank 1 gem, the following happens:

Rank 1 to Rank 2 = 100%

Rank 2 to Rank 3 = 100%

Rank 3 to Rank 4 = 100%

If you did it on rank 12, you would have that final upgrade as a 90% chance.

Legendary Gems start at Rank 0, not Rank 1

You are correct! Apologies for that, my mistake. I'll make sure that the writers are made aware and this gets fixed.

"Urshi asks you to choose between upgrading your gem or refunding you an upgraded Keystone"

Is this still true?

 

 

No it is not. This entire guide will get an update, since it has a bit of outdated info. Will post here when it is updated!

Boon of the Hoarder is no longer exclusive to Greed, it also drops in G-Rifts.

I've put in another note for the gems guide to be updated, hopefully we can get it done soon!

Could anyone tell me how to get the gem recipes for royals? I started my first seasonal character and I totally forgot how to get the recipes since it's been so long since I got the recipes for my non seasonal characters.

You'll need to do bounties - they drop in the caches!

Missing the Esoteric Gem. The one that reduces all non-physical damage...

There are a few missing since it hasn't been updated in a while. I've made notes for it to be done, but yet to be so far - will ping the note again and get it done, sorry!

Just one more friendly bump since its been 6 months since anyone posted on this thread for an update.

An update for this guide should be coming soon-ish, but since it is near the bottom of our priority list, I can't really say when. Sorry to keep you waiting!
